Until, my portfolio has existed entirely digitally (no printed version). Actually, my portfolio has been my prior clients walls and wallets. But, I would like to have a print version in case I'm ever asked to see it. Any suggestions on where/what to buy? I'd like to include no more than 30 images per book, I would like simple & modern lines and the ability to change images and position them as I like (no pockets).

What type of work do you do? WHat is your budget for a solid book?
This two will most likely determine your options for portfolios.

I'm in the process of reduing my portfolio & with some advice from one of my professors they instructed me to build a portfolio for each subject ( sports, Portriats, etc.) with at least 10 prints. My current albums has 8x10's but my next ones is all going to be 11x14's.

CHeck out ITOYA portfolio books - they are reasonably priced for what they are. Do a search on http://www.bhphoto.com - or at your local art-supply store.
If you can afford a custom made portfolio at $150 each, check out House of Portfolios (http://www.houseofportfolios.com) or ADB (http://adbportfolio.com/books.html)
Hope this helps.

I do mostly portrait work...outdoor and candid family, child, baby, senior portraits. I've done a couple weddings too, but enjoy the portrait work more than the weddings so far. I'm also planning to do some sports this Spring/Summer for another guy. I'm a teacher, so I don't do this full time and what I do mostly just helps pay for my equipment! :) ...and like I said, most of my work comes from word of mouth, which has been plenty...so, its not like I need to attract a large client population, otherwise I'd just have to turn people away. I've really only got a small amount of time to do this after teaching and being a grad. student as well. So, I don't want to spend a ton on a portfolio, but I would like it to look descent. I like the idea of having one album for each type of photography....I'll check that link...thanks for the help!
